You will no doubt be aware that from September 2016, there was an update to the ‘Keeping Children Safe in Education’ (KCSiE) statutory guidance, that will include the ‘Prevent Duty’ and will affect every school and college in England and Wales.

As a School or provider of educational services, you will need to be able to demonstrate that you can monitor and report on online safety incidents and also the impact of your policy on your key stakeholders (SLT, Governors, Staff, Pupils/Students, Parents/Carers).

As with most guidance of this nature, some of the main points are open to interpretation, however, clearly technology has a major role to play in helping meet compliance.

In particular, Ofsted will be looking at the following areas in terms of the online safety policy:

  • A consistent and holistic approach
  • Robust and integrated reporting routines
  • Effective staff training
  • A clearly communicated and respected policy
  • Up to date and appropriate internet filtering and monitoring

Compliance to the ‘Prevent Duty’ is an effective combination of people, policy and appropriate controls. Underpinning any compliant environment and forming part of your broader safeguarding policy, will be a secure computer network with the appropriate controls embedded.

If you would like to hear more about how Taurus, in partnership with SonicWall (previously Dell Security), can not only help you meet your ‘Prevent Duty’ compliance requirements but will enable you to demonstrate how your outstanding, secure and monitored computing environment is protecting students/pupils, staff and guests alike, then please join us for our ‘Safeguarding in Education’ ICT Seminar on Thursday 8th December at Plymouth Science Park.
